The TR samba tower amusement equipment is a new type of tower ride based on the TR samba balloon ride. They have, therefore, something in common and something in difference.
In terms of the appearance, both machines have colorful hot air balloon-shaped cockpits. As for the movement, both rotates clockwise or counterclockwise, and passengers can control the rotation of their gondola themselves. However, a samba tower attraction also lifts riders up and down, while a samba balloon tilts for additional variations of motion. Hence, samba towers are taller than samba balloons. By and large, both are suitable for families.
